mandela on a couple of occasions. president obama also said that we will never see the likes of nelson mandela again. is he right? >> i think so in a physical sense, but perhaps in this sense of not only spirituality but in the sense of presence and the times in which he led. like gandhi, like king, like lincoln, nelson mandela lived through trials and tribulations and suffered mightily for what his views were yet emerged to be recognized not only as a great leader of south africa, but we see from the tribute, 90 world leaders, four u.s. presidents. the tribute to him is memorable. i cannot remember a funeral of this sort, a memory of this sort for any person in my life. >> and we are just dpbeginning, there are many more days of tributes to him. the president's speech today struck a lot of personal notes as well. he was inspired by nelson mandela. let me play another clip. >> over 30 years ago, while still a student, i learned of nelson mandela and the struggles taking place in this beautiful land, and it stirred something in me. it woke me up to my responsibilities. to others and to

in a few years, unfortunately and certainly, right now we have less upward mobility and we are are down there as president obama mentioned with brazil and jamaica. this is not the american dream that everybody aspires to, and i think this is certainly a message that needs to be put out there. >> clarence paige, susan, thank you very much. >> you can watch chris matthews' exclusive interview with president obama, and that's at 7:00 eastern on msnbc. >>> nbc news has learned that former new york police commissioner bill brattin is returning to the job he had decades ago. the mayor is expected to make the announcement in new york. bratton held the top cop position in new york, and los angeles. he is also an nbc and msnbc.com contributor. the crime rate in new york city under his watch went down. we'll keep an eye on that. >> an american teacher in texas has been shot to death in libya. it happened in ben ga gassy. a former principal at the school said the teacher was killed while jogging near his home. no one has claimed responsibility, but we will keep you posted on any developments.

being filibustered for all presidential appointments, you have 82 for president obama, so this is an issue of fairness and what's just right an wrong. i hardly think that filibuster reform issue can be squarely focused as a liberal issue, it's really about fairness and equality. >> elizabeth warren is getting buzzed about as a possible alternative to hillary clinton in 2016. let me play a little bit of an interview she did with rachel maddow. >> we have a retirement crisis in america. this is no time, this is the last time to be talking about cutting social security. this is the moment when we talk about expanding social security. >> well, noelle, to the big tent idea angela was talking about, social security is a sacred cow. is that the kind of message that will resonate with a lot of americans on both sides of the aisle? >> well, i think when you start tampering with social security, i think you're going to get the attention of a lot of americans. but i think right now, you know, my personal opinion as a republican strategist is i think that the lunatic fringe from both parties
